Sprouts Farmers Market will open in Vista, California, at 1400 East Vista Way on Wednesday, Oct. 16. Sprouts, which is one the fastest-growing companies in the country, is known for its store layout inspired by farmers markets, which features fresh produce at the center of the store, an expansive bulk foods section and an extensive vitamin department focused on wellness.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held before doors open at 7 a.m. The first 200 shoppers will receive 20 percent off their initial total purchase. Muffin and coffee samples will be served to guests in line before doors open.
Every customer on grand opening day will receive a free reusable bag with purchase.
As part of Sprouts’ commitment to “zero waste,” the new store will donate unsold and edible groceries to Feeding San Diego through the grocer’s Food Rescue program. In 2018, Sprouts stores and distribution centers donated 27 million pounds of product, equivalent to 23 million meals. Food that is not fit for donation is provided to local cattle farms and composting facilities.
Sprouts’ evolving “zero waste” initiatives help minimize food waste while reducing the impact of hunger and the company’s environmental footprint.
